Educational Philosophy: Success in mathematics requires a lot of practice, and students are expected to work sufficient numbers of problems outside of class to attain an adequate level of proficiency. Math courses are not exercises in "memorization", rather, upon completion of the course the student should have a thorough understanding of the fundamentals and be able to effectively apply the learned concepts to new problems and accurately interpret the results. Students must take responsibility for their own learning.
